If someone isn't using the Kindle for "much more than eBooks," how the heck can they be using up more than fifty million bytes a month of internet?

Now, personally, I do use the Kindle for "much more than eBooks," because I use it at least as much to read essays and news articles as to read books. Some of this involves the browser, and some does not.

The great thing about the browser, for me, is that you can get a broader international perspective on the news. Here are examples that have rarely if ever been mentioned before on this site:

http://m.timesofindia.com/

http://k.nhk.jp/daily/

http://mobile.ghanaweb.com/wap

http://m.theage.com.au/


With large print, thanks to Robin Gardner's readingthenet.com, these are respectively:

http://www.readingthenet.com/mob?ct=...mesofindia.com

http://www.readingthenet.com/mob?ct=....jp%2Fdaily%2F

http://www.readingthenet.com/mob?ct=...aweb.com%2Fwap

http://www.readingthenet.com/mob?ct=...eage.com.au%2F

Above four in easy-to-enter format are respectively:

tinyurl.com/7gmf6ae

tinyurl.com/d9lwp85

tinyurl.com/d4qvhxm

tinyurl.com/cn6kr4l

Even if people add a bit of emailing to internet eReading of sites like these, I don't see getting to 50M in a month, especially after a confirming opinion in #68 (thanks andrys). Disabling of images recommended.
